The Exporting of American Jobs
The cabal of industrialists, bankers and businessmen at the pinnacle of the New World Order are behind the effort to create world government. They were also behind what was, in 1994, the beginning of a concerted effort to create a global mercantile system in the impoverished third world at the expense of the taxpayers in the industrial world.
The logic was simple. Consumers in the industrial world, who earn roughly 80% of the income produced globally, and who buy 80% of the consumer products made, represent 15% of the world's population. What made matters worse for the princes of industry and the barons of banking and business in the late 1980s and early 1990s is the industrialized nations were largely "replacement markets," which means the affluent consumers in the West pretty much possess one or more of every consumer product and thus, needed nothing..
On the other hand, the third world, where 85% of the world's population lives, have nothing and need everything—especially the jobs required to create the income to buy the products of the marquess of mercantilism have to sell. Which, of course, is the reason our jobs are being exported to the third world at such an astronomical rate. The people in the third world who are standing in line for them are the new consumers of the 21st century—and the globalists are already over one decade into the century.
Starting to understand the problem? There are few jobs here today because the factories and, in many cases, the entire industries which created those jobs, are gone. For the Jobs, Opportunity, Benefits & Service Act or Obama's late-bloomer American Jobs Act to actually generate jobs, there have to be employers available to hire them. Since those employers are no longer the behemoth manufacturing giants that "grew up with America," who have retained their US branded names while they trade their Americanism for globalism, those jobs which are available, or will become available if the GOP Jobs, Opportunity, Benefits & Service Act (not the Obama version) is enacted will have to come from a new generation of US entrepreneurs—you know them as "Obama's rich"—those earning $250,000 or more per year. They represent the American upper middle class small business employer whose S-corporation or non-incorporated sole proprietor family business take all of the financial risks and provides 60% of all the jobs in America.
Which brings us back to the community activist. (I keep referring to Obama as the community activist because there is no the only way to describe him. You can't call him anything else because he has no experience at anything else.) He is so oblivious about how to grow jobs in America that he didn't understand the need to fill the critical jobs creation slots in his administration with alumni of the free enterprise system who understand how to grow jobs. He chose, instead, to fill every job in his administration is watermelon Marxists—environmentally green out the outside, communist red on the inside. In the free enterprise system of our forefathers, capitalism could not be subjected to government control because entreprenurialship requires unencumbered individual initiative. People with the inherent right to develop their own ideas using their own resources, unrestricted by the State, create the products that will be used by the next generation. Here is an economic reality: On paper, communism sounds benign—everyone working equally hard for the betterment of the community, and all sharing equally in the results of that "community labor," with government enjoying the role of paymaster dividing the fruits of everyone's labor. . Since people are inherently selfish, they tend to work harder, and are far more committed to success when their sweat equity is invested in themselves, and they are allowed to profit directly from their efforts.
We have finally arrived at what a community organizer does. What he's good at. He excels at extorting money from those whose sweat equity investment in their own labor produces their economic and financial abundance. And, he excels at redistributing the wealth of the working middle class to the non-working class which lacks the initiative and self-determination to stay in school, get an education, and get a job.
The truth is, the American free enterprise system that existed prior to Franklin D. Roosevelt rewarded the entrepreneurial spirit. Beginning with FDR's socialist regulations and up to the redistribute policies of the current White House occupant. Through oppressive regulation, Roosevelt began compressing the free enterprise system into a centralized communal economic system that encouraged inefficient redundancies that resulted in mediocre productivity. In a communal work environment, once factory workers see that the laziest worker on the line earns as much as the most productive worker on the line, it doesn't take long before all of the workers are truly equal—with no worker expending more energy than what is needed to keep them from being fired. FDR's socialist regulations expanded Herbert Hoover's 1930-1932 recession into a decade-long depression. And, Obama is now using FDR's playbook.
America is, and always has been, a nation of immigrants who earned the equality they enjoy among their peers through the sweat equity of their labor as they strived collectively to build the greatest nation on Earth. This nation was not built by General Motors or General Electric, by Proctor & Gamble or Philip Morris; by Hewlett Packard or Heinz. It was built by the common folk who do the living and dying in nation-building. And, who are they? They are the descendants of the Boston Tea Party patriots and the farmers from places like Concord and Lexington. They are the descendants of the soldiers who froze at Valley Forge; and those who fought on both sides of the US Civil War in places like Antietam, Appomattox Courthouse, Athens, Atlanta, Gettysburg, Pea Ridge, Shiloh, or hundreds of other places where men died in wars they didn't understand and didn't want to fight.
Today, the princes of industry and barons of banking are stripping this nation bare of its factories like the underclass looters stripped the stores of New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina—a city which lost its both its social conscience and its soul. What makes America great is not the industrialists nor the industries they created. It is the moral conscience of its citizens. They, not the monolithic titans of industry, made this country great. Sending not only our jobs but our factories to the third world will not, over the years, grow those businesses, because the moral incentive that exists in America is uniquely American because America is a unique place. That moral incentive does not exist in Indonesia or China, nor in Afghanistan or Pakistan. That's why the princes of industry continue to bribe politicians to heavily tax the small business American entrepreneurs they fear so much as they continue to seek regulate that competition out of existence.
Each of America's titans of business and industry all began as small entrepreneurs. They grew up in an industrial age that welcomed entrepreneurialship. Today, those at the pinnacle of the pyramid of power can no longer afford competition from the next generation of industrialists—even in a nation they deserted. The only thing the princes of industry and the barons of business need today from America is the patronage of its consumers. Until the third world becomes a thriving retail community with consumers buying the products their workers create, they still need you to buy the wares your former jobs are creating somewhere else—as more and more Americans find themselves out of work, But, with 46 million Americans now living below the poverty line, cheap slave labor goods from the third world is about all they can afford to buy. Welcome to Obama's redistribution of wealth.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the total persons unemployed in the United States was 9.1% in August. When you throw in all of those who are "marginally employed" (having your hours—and income—cut in half, but still qualifying for some unemployment benefits), the number of unemployed persons rises to 16.1%. (Labor Dept. statistics do not track the unemployed people once their benefits expire.) In April, 2009, 5.8 million Americans were collecting benefits. That month, there were 13.8 million unemployed people in the United States seeking jobs. There are no statistics that track the number of people who, after two, three or more years of trying to find work, simply gave up.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, as of Aug. 31, 2011, there were 131.1 million employed people in the United States. Many of these are marginally employed people, and many of those counted may be holding down two or more part-time jobs, so the reality is the actual total employed is probably closer to 130 million than 131.1 million.
Without taking into account illegal aliens or those who live in the underground economy, and those who were not counted in the 2010 census, there are 308,745,538 legal people in the United States. That means, of the total population, 178,745,538 people were not working on Aug. 31, 2011.
Of the total population, 25% are 18 years of age or younger. Whether any of them had jobs or not, that leaves 102,559,153 adult people without jobs. Let's further assume that half of these are unemployed people who want a job (even if they are 65 years of age or older) and the other half are welfare recipients who wouldn't take a job if offered (or they are 65 years of age or older and too infirmed to work). What that nets down to is that, very likely, in the United States today there are probably about 51,279,576 people who want to work but literally gave up on the notion of ever finding a job. Again, some of these may be people who are too old, or people with handicaps, etc. But, even if you reduce that number in half, it's still a far cry from 13.8 million "officially" unemployed people.
Guiding the unemployment crisis with the stealth of a wind-up toy is the community organizer who is completely out of his element in this environment. There are "shovel-ready jobs" on almost every street of America. Obama can't see them because they are "free enterprise zone" jobs. Small businesses that only need government to stay out of the way, stop raising taxes, and stop writing punitive environmental regulations that bankrupt them, or drain their revenue stream enough that they can't afford to hire.

Today, it costs small businesses $10,500 for every employee they hire—not counting the cost of fringe benefits. Obama claims there is a provision in his "jobs" bill that will give that small business owner a tax credit of $4,000 for every employee they hire who has been out of work for at least 6 months. Want that business owner to hire? Waive that $10,500 and still give him the $4,000 tax credit. If Obama can give a campaign donor $135,295.00 for each green employee he hires, the government should be able to give the small business owner on Main Street a one-time credit of $14,500 each for every non-green employees he hires.
Because, as it is now, the only jobs the community organizer has created are either government jobs or those he bought through loans and grants. An Obama bundler received a $535 million stimulus loan to create a green energy company last year. That company, which filed bankruptcy in August, provided 1,100 temporary green jobs at a cost to the taxpayers of over $135,295.00 per job. For part three click below.
